Get Out of the Helicopter and Help Me Put on this Jetpack- Coaching Your Kids to Be Independent and Ready for a Complex, Fast-Paced Future – Chrissy Bruce, Diverse Learning
What do paying attention, organising, planning, completing tasks, regulating emotions, and self monitoring all have it common? They are all controlled by a special brain function that we all have called Executive Functioning Skills. It is sometimes called “the CEO of the brain” because these skills allow us to set goals, plan, and basically….get things done. Named the number 1 skill that parents and teachers MUST understand for students who struggle with these skills, it has never been easier to add this to your parent toolbox. A bit of theory mixed with a whole lot of hands on examples will allow participants to walk away with a game changing understanding that they can put to use at home to stop hovering and start equipping their children for the future.
